  • Your Daily Muslim: Raymond Akhtar Ali ( Australian Muslim )

    Your Daily Muslim ^ | August 17, 2013 | YDM
    It all started when Australian halal butcher Raymond Akhtar Ali just wanted to get a little on the side. He began to casually see one of the employees at his butcher shop, a 22-year-old non-Muslim woman. After a short period, the woman felt she had become his “sex slave,” and discovered she had been impregnated by him. With her employment on the line if she were to stop seeing him, she felt she had few choices but to carry the child to term. She gave birth in secret, with Ali present. A baby born out of wedlock is considered a...

    BIRMINGHAM, AL, August 8, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – An Alabama judge has shut down Birmingham's New Women, All Women abortion facility after finding its owner was illegally operating without a state license. Judge Joseph Boohaker of the Jefferson County Circuit Court also permanently barred its alleged proprietor, Dr. Bruce Norman, from operating an abortion facility at this location in the future. The decision comes just one day after an ambulance was called to the Jackson Women's Health Organization in Mississippi, where Dr. Norman also performs abortions, to transport a pale brunette woman to the hospital.

    From the time Abraham Lincoln entered the White House nearly a century and a half ago, there has been an anti-Lincoln tradition in American life. President John Tyler’s son, writing in 1932, seemed to speak for a silent minority: “I think he was a bad man,” wrote Lyon Gardiner Tyler, “a man who forced the country into an unnecessary war and conducted it with great inhumanity.” Throughout his presidency Lincoln was surrounded by rivals, even among his own cabinet. Outside the White House, his many enemies included conservative Whigs, Democrats, northern copperheads and New England abolitionists. Wisconsin editor, Marcus M....

    Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist now on trial in Philadelphia charged with seven counts of first-degree murder--he allegedly cut the spinal cords of late-term aborted babies who were born alive--apparently used to joke about the large size of some the infants he aborted and in one case, according to what a co-worker told the grand jury, said, “This baby is big enough to walk around with me or walk me to the bus stop.” Gosnell, 72, who ran a multi-million dollar abortion business in West Philadelphia, was arrested on Jan. 19, 2011, and his trial started Monday, Mar. 18, 2013....

According to police, the department was alerted by a 21-year-old woman, who said her husband, Kristopher Corey Butcher, 25, had become upset when their 3-month-old baby began crying. "When she went into the baby's room the husband secured the door so she could not leave the room with the baby.

    (NewsCore) - Italian police arrested a Naples butcher after discovering worm-infested meat for sale in his store that was 10 years past its expiry date, the ANSA news agency reported Friday. Shocked food safety inspectors discovered pasta and biscuits crawling with parasites, rotting meats and dairy products, and olives covered in mold in the store of horrors. The butcher tampered with expiry dates on the products in order to keep on selling the items, even though some were a decade old, the report said. Police arrested the butcher on suspicion of endangering public health.

    Alberto Hodari performs abortions as casually as others pick their teeth, and with just as much thought. He has bragged about being involved in tens of thousands of abortions. Tens of thousands! He has wiped out literally several small towns in terms of population. And he's proud of it. But Hodari's past doesn't just include tens of thousands of dead babies. Probably due to his proclivity of lying to his potential patients to steer them towards an abortion, something he freely admitted to college students at Wayne State University, saying that he has a "license to lie, he's killed 4...

    What was once a grocery shop is now a blackened mess. Two boys in shorts and singlets play in the rubble but the usual occupants are absent. Five days ago a Han Chinese family was butchered in this small shop — victims of the Uighurs who rampaged through Urumqi. Yu Dongzhi described how he clawed through the smoking ruins of the store to search for the family who lived there. He hoped to find his sister, Yu Xinli; her husband, Zhang Mingying; their 13-year-old son; her elderly mother-in-law; and a nephew aged 27. The police helped him to dig among...

    Saeed Mortazavi, who has reportedly been given the job of pursuing Iranian democracy protesters through the courts, is a formidable hardliner with a decade-long track record of cracking down on reformists. As prosecutor-general of Tehran since 2003 and as a judge before that, he has earned the nickname "the butcher of the press" for ordering the closure of more than 100 newspapers, journals and websites suspected of being hostile to the establishment. He oversaw the arrest and trial earlier this year of Roxana Saberi, the American-Iranian journalist sentenced to eight years for spying, and it has been Mr Mortazavi's name...

    The Kansas Supreme Court heard arguments today over subpoenaed medical records of notorious abortionist George Tiller, who is accused of performing late-term abortions — which are illegal in Kansas — at his Wichita clinic. In January, the Sedgwick County grand jury subpoenaed about 2,000 late-term abortion records from Tiller’s clinic; the judge reduced that to 250. Tiller is refusing to turn over the records, claiming it would violate his patients’ privacy. However, the grand jury requested that all patient-identifying information be redacted from the subpoenaed records before the jury receives them. Tiller's attorneys argued the grand jury investigation constitutes harassment,...

    Former Attorney General Janet Reno said the U.S. government must be careful to avoid selectively using facts when prosecuting suspected terrorists. Reno, who served as attorney general under President Bill Clinton, said prosecutors often allow prejudices to skew their use of facts. "But what I've discovered (from being a prosecutor and attorney general) is that we get tunnel vision," Reno said. "We want the facts to be something and we wish them into being." Reno made her comments while speaking to an audience of mostly students and professors at the S.J. Quinney College of Law on Tuesday. Her speech focused...

The interview, a first for Butcher in many years, was aired Tuesday evening.

Reno told members of the Manatee Bar Association on Wednesday that ``there's nothing more horrible (than) being told you're going away for life for a crime you didn't commit. Let's file charges based on solid evidence.'' Reno is on the board of directors for the Innocence Project, a nonprofit organization that has helped exonerate 197 prisoners through DNA testing.

Iraqi laws will be followed, officials said. However, both the prosecutors and defense lawyers are receiving outside help, as...

In a full-page ad published in local newspapers over the weekend, Dr. Warren Hern said the flyers, distributed by a group that calls itself Operation Save America, were designed to cause hate and fear and to get someone to kill him. As proof, Hern points to other abortion doctors who have been killed after neighborhood flyers identified them. The flyers labeled Hern a "baby killer" and were placed in the doors of a Boulder neighborhood. "It's not freedom...

    In the early 1940s, a politically ambitious butcher from West Virginia named Bob Byrd recruited 150 of his friends and associates to form a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. After Byrd had collected the $10 joining fee and $3 charge for a robe and hood from every applicant, the "Grand Dragon" for the mid-Atlantic states came down to tiny Crab Orchard, W.Va., to officially organize the chapter. As Byrd recalls now, the Klan official, Joel L. Baskin of Arlington, Va., was so impressed with the young Byrd's organizational skills that he urged him to go into politics. "The country...

Telephone calls to the clinic rang unanswered on Friday, and Osborne does not have...

Allan Menzies, 23, was found hanged in his cell at Shotts Prison in Lanarkshire yesterday morning. He was jailed in October 2003 after being convicted of bludgeoning his friend to death.

Are we so weak in Iraq that we're letting them get away with such true torture and abuse--not to mention murder? To my mind this makes the hubub over our prisoner abuse pale in comparision--in reality there is no comparison. Do our policy-makers really think Iraq will have a stable pro-western government--when whole cities have not admitted the defeat of Saddam, but rather have declared "victory" over us?

It is where Saddam Hussein has drawn his inspiration. It is the home of the god Saddam Hussein worships. Not the Allah of Islam. But the serpent of the garden. We must never fear calling a spade a spade, or a devil a devil. And Saddam Hussein is that. He long since stopped being a man and became a partner with evil. A disciple of darkness....

    And so this is how it ends for the fearsome Ace of Spades: Dragged unresisting from a rathole in the dirt, scabbed and filthy, all bluster and bravado gone, the fire fled from his belly, silently and forlornly submitting to the indignity of a videotaped oral swab - For the ways of the wicked will surely come down upon their heads ... When his own time came to fight to his last bullet, his last drop of blood, his last heroic breath, Saddam Hussein put up his hands. He never reached for a gun. Not a shot was fired as...

    Pretoria - Video footage of South African police brutality that goes back as far as the apartheid era is being used by Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe to incite his youth brigade, the Green Bombers. Information on the man believed to be the "brain" behind the brigade's indoctrination and his "specialised acts" in certain instances has been filtering out of Zimbabwe recently. The "brain" - also known as Mugabe's secret weapon - is apparently former Brigadier-General Ricky Ruwodo who is also accused of having been involved in the land-grab process. It is understood that people who do not conform to Zanu-PF...

    Court Rejects Davidian Claim Against U.S. Tue Jul 15, 9:52 AM ET Add U.S. National - AP to My Yahoo! By ALAN SAYRE, Associated Press Writer NEW ORLEANS - A federal appeals court rejected an attempt by survivors to collect damages from the government for the deadly 1993 confrontation outside Waco, Texas, between federal agents and members of the Branch Davidian cult.

    Son of Saddam Odai Hussein Brutal to Iraqis, Behind Torture of U.S. Prisoners By Brian Ross Feb. 14 — It was a father's dilemma: What to do with a wayward son? In Saddam Hussein's case, the problem was his son Odai, who has been accused of murders and rapes too numerous to count. For Saddam, the answer was to put Odai in charge of Iraq's Olympic committee. In the 16 years since, Odai Hussein has more than lived up to his reputation for capricious cruelty. One example: 20/20 uncovered evidence linking Odai with the torture and interrogation of some...

    <p>A notorious bank fraud case provided more ammunition yesterday for shots fired between Lamar Alexander and Bob Clement in the U.S. Senate race.</p> <p>In the latest round, the Clement campaign accused Alexander of taking $50,000 in campaign contributions raised by the late C.H. Butcher Jr. and later lobbying federal regulators to preserve the banking empire Butcher and his brother, Jake, had built. The Butchers went to prison for bank fraud after federal and state regulators padlocked their failing banks in 1983.</p>
